Low odour for new Dursban formula
DURSBAN WG, a new wettable powder formulation of Dursban (chlorpyriphos), offers a unique lower odour, solvent-free formulation of the industry-leading insecticide, says Dow AgroSceinces James Knight.
"Operator safety and environmental stewardship are always priorities.
"The WG formulation has a high concentration of active ingredient, which means packaging is reduced, providing easier handling, storage and disposal," he says.
Treatment should only ever be made after a full risk assessment, including assessing the level of infestation, air temperature and wind speed, he continues. Where appropriate a 12m headland should be left unsprayed. *
